NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Mr. J. G. Callan, formerly with the General Electrical Company, will give the first of a series of nine lectures on "The Steam Turbine" in Pierce 110 this morning at 12 o'clock. The special subject of today's lecture is "Elements of the Steam Turbine--Physical and Mathematical." It will be open only to members of the University.

These lectures are planned as a review of the subject for the general student whose knowledge of mathematics and thermodynamics will not permit him to go into the details of design. They will be illustrated from time to time with stereopticon views.

The dates and titles of the remaining eight lectures are as follows:

January 6.--"Origin of Types."

January 9.--"Commercial Land Turbines."

January 11.--"Design of Reaction Turbines."

January 13.--"Design of Impulse Turbines."

January 16.--"Comparisons, Details, and Auxiliaries."

January 18.--"Low Pressure Turbines--Small Turbines."

January 20.--"Marine Turbines."

January 23.--"Efficiencies--Driven Machinery."
